About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To have a beer in all the corners of the world

ABOUT ME

Español viviendo en Panamá después de haber viajado por muchos meses. Reorganizando mi vida en la ciudad.

Soy una persona que me gusta mas vivir un pais desde dentro que visitarlo como un turista. Me encanta ver como la gente vive cada dia en cada rincon del planeta.
Me encanta las experiencias fuertes, me gustaria nadar con tiburones (hecho), paracaidismo (hecho), perderme en un pais que no pueda comunicarme, estar en la sabana y relajarme en las playas mas bonitas del mundo (trabajando en ello).
Normalmente me gustan las cosas sencillas y casi siempre tengo un pensamiento positivo acerca de las cosas. Siempre me digo....alegrate, podria ser peor.

No me gusta cuando la gente ni mira los perfiles, así­ que si quieren que los alojen tendran que poner mi nombre y el de mi novia para que sepa que lo leyeron (Javier & Yelitza)...creo que no pido demasiado.

-----------------------------------------------------

Spanish living in Panama after many months traveling. Re-adjusting my life.

I am a person who loves to be involved in a country. I like more to live in a country rather than just travel. I love to see how people and daily live is going on in the different countries.
I also have a love to new experiences...I would like to swim with sharks (done), make skydiving (done), enjoy the savanna, get lost in a country where I cannot communicate with nobody and chill in the most beautiful beaches on the planet (currently working on it).
I like simple things and I usually have a positive thinking. I always say to me.... it could be worse.

I dont like when people doesnt even read the profile so if you want to be hosted you have to address the request in my name and my girlfriends (Javier & Yelitza). This way I will know if you have read my profile...I dont think I ask too much

I have lived the last 9 years in shared appartments (with no complains on me) but my flatmates where no so open and they didnt let me have people they didnt know. When I'll have my place, things will change.

Interests

Me gustan todo tipo de musica, deportes (futbol, baloncesto, gym, etc) y sobre todo viajar. Pero no en los tours en lo que todo esta hecho y te llevan de un lado a otro para que hagas la foto típica de cada sitio. Y por supuesto, me encanta la fiesta.

---------------------------------------------------

I love all kinds of music, make tourism but not is pre-programmed tour were everything is setup. I love to see and be in places where you can feel the real country and peoples´s culture. Besides I love all kinds of sports from football to badminton. And, I also love to party.

Music, Movies & Books

Braveheart, El señor de los anillos, lock stock and two smocking barrels, oldboy, slumdog millonaire. En musica, cualquier tipo es bueno para mis oidos...techno, rock, heavy, pop, forro....y sino me gusta puedo apagar mis oidos y escuchar mi musica favorita dentro de mi cabeza; que la fiesta no pare!

-----------------------------------------------

Braveheart, Lord of the rings, lock stock and two smocking barrels, oldboy, slumdog millonaire. In music, I love every style, from rock, punk, heavy, techno, latin, salsa, pop, forro...and if I dont like it I can switch off my ears and listen my favourite music in my head :) dont stop the party!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Puedes ser que leyendo esto pienses....eso no es increible...pero para si han sido cosas increible y a la vez divertidas.

- Paracaidismo
- Disfrutado la mejor fiesta del mundo, Sanfermines (Pamplona, España).
- Conducir y perderse en los fiordos noruegos.
- Perderse por Amsterdam. Todo el mundo es normal en esta ciudad. Nadie te mirara como un bicho raro vayas como vayas.
- Odiar las noches polares. Al necesitar oscuridad nocturna para dormir bien :D era complicado pegar ojo ya que parecia que estabas a las 3pm.
- Ir en bici desde Holanda hasta Belgica. Gran sufrimiento pero mereció la pena por las grandes historias y momentos de diversión.
- Pasar un dia en el desierto del Sahara. Tener un poco de miedo al perderme en la noche por unos minutos.
- Ganar el mundial de futbol 2010 y las Eurocopas 2008 y 2012
- Dejar el trabajo y todo tipo de comodidades para viajar (sigueme en Cornago's on tour blog)
- Nadar con tiburones, focas, tortugas marinas, mantas raya, etc.
- Navegar en un velero el pacífico con dirección a la Polinesia Francesa
- Conocer las culturas desde dentro
- Hacer reir a un niño

------------------------------------------------------

Maybe if u read this you think...thats not amazing but for me... it has been pretty nice things to do.
- Skydiving
- I have enjoyed the greatest, craziest and funniest party in the world...Sanfermin (Pamplona, Spain). People from all over the planet hunging out together with only one goal...have fun. Everybody is willing to have fun and nobody is in a bad mood. I really recommend u to visit this party once in a life.
- Drive through the norwegian fjords. Its just increadible views...everywhere you look at, you get amazed. I really think this experience should be done as a backpacker and definetely never as a pre-setup tour. People is quiet but at the same so nice and trustful.
- Get lost in one of the most open-minded cities in the world...Amsterdam. Everything and everybody is considered as normal in Netherlands´ capital city. You would never be a strange animal if u are walking through its streets.
- Hate the north latitudes night because no-night is over there. 24-7 of light is a torture for a person like me who needs completely darkness for a good sleep.
- Bike from the Netherlands until Belgium as we thought it was nice...belive me it wasnt because Im a lazy bastard, haha ;) However, the views, beers and friends stories were awesome.
- Spend a day on the Sahara desert. Be lost in a desert for some minutes; enjoy the sunshine and feel the silence.
- win the worldcup of football in 2010
- Quit job and comodities to travel the world (Follow me in Cornago's on tour blog)
- Swim with sharks, seals, turtles, sting-rays, etc.
- Sail in sailing vessel the pacific on the way to French Polynesia
- Enjoy cultures from inside
- Make laugh a kid
